Betsy and Josh are just precious. When you meet them both you just want to hug them. Unassuming, kind and soft spoken, we had fun watching them be the center of attention – a place neither of them fight for. And they did beautifully!
They chose their venue for its Victorian details – Betsy loves that period and wanted to include the wedding traditions from that period as well as set the stage amidst beautiful gardens. Hardeman Sams covered both bases nicely.
Spring colors ruled the day with flowers(link) in a palette of lavender, pale pink and ivory. There were even Bells of Ireland tucked into the bouquets in honor of the couples Irish heritage.
The bridesmaids dresses were in the same color palette, but each girl had the opportunity to choose a style that was flattering to her figure. Nice. Betsy’s gown was a little vintage and lot glamorous with layer upon layer of chiffon and lace complimenting her veil.
The couples sense of humor was evident in the groom’s cake, and the poetry of their love evident in their choice of the last dance song. ‘And I Love Her’ by the Beatles……’bright are the stars that shine, dark is the sky. I know this love of mine will never die’. And so it was that spring night in Athens.
